I know that tips are included with Thomson cruises however, is it in order to tip a member of staff who does an exceptional job? without upsetting the norm ?.

£2 per adult per night for waiter and same for stewardess. We took children and were told that was at our discretion so we gave one adult equivilent for them but that was out choice. We also chose to give one other staff member a gratuity but it was completely unexpected I could tell from the reaction. On the last few days envelopes are available from reception on the top and easy to collect. We gave them to the waiter and stewardess on the final night. We had really good service .

Yes, £2 per person is the recommended sum. It is worth looking at the Fred. Olsen brocure and their website (A -Z on cruising site)for all sorts of good advice on your cruise.Have a great cruise.
